    Unlike Apple's iPhone or Nokia's Lumia series, phones from Motorola have been a mixed bag when it comes to camera performance. Depending on whether the smartphone in question is a high-end flagship or a low-end entry-level handset, the quality of pictures taken can vary widely. The camera in question today is that which ...

    Changes are shifting in the smartphone market. Once-dominant players have fallen to the wayside, and even seemingly unstoppable juggernauts are seeing their market share chipped-away at by budget-minded newcomers able to deliver shoppers more value for their money. Even the software landscape is changing, as alternate ...

    The custom configuration options offered by Motorola's Moto Maker service add up to one of the most engaging mobile hardware shopping experiences you'll find anywhere; the ability to experiment with different design elements and instantly see the result can be hugely satisfying. And though it's been around for a while, ...

    With MWC ending, our fickle smartphone attention is sure to start turning to whatever's next, eager to latch-on to the next big handset to launch. Sure, Apple's got that event coming up on Monday, but that's likely to be the Apple Watch's shindig, with no major handset new expect. Maybe next on our radar will be LG, ...

    Earlier this week we took a look at the GSM Association's picks for the best mobile hardware of the year: the iPhone 6, LG G3, Surface Pro 3, and Moto 360 emerged as the big winners. But while the GSMA announces its winners every MWC, it's a little unsatisfying to be handing out awards to all this old hardware at an ...

    OnePlus formally launched its One back in April of last year, so it's perfectly understandable that we're already getting curious about when a follow-up might be ready. Rumors have already listed some hardware details that make the presumptive OnePlus 2 sound pretty damn appealing, talking about some top-shelf silicon ...

    Last month we learned about Google's plans for a big expansion of Wallet, joining forces with the carriers behind Softcard (née ISIS). And while that's good news for Google, Wallet, and arguably Android mobile payments in general, it hasn't been such a promising turn of events for everyone involved. As a result of this ...

    Have the big flagship launches of MWC 2015 convinced you it's time to get a new smartphone? Oh, who are we kidding? With devices as desirable as the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6, you probably didn't need too much convincing, anyway. But as you start wondering about whether or not you should pick one of these guys up ...

    Good artists copy. Great artists steal. Artists with body guards brag about it. Or something like that. But in the world where three major operating systems have reached a level where they’re all perfectly fine, and if the other two disappeared for whatever reason, most people would be able to carry on with the ...

    At this point, it's fair to say that much of the wind has left MWC's sails. From a Sunday packed with pre-MWC launches, we've been seeing a steady dwindling-off of new high-profile hardware as the week unfolds, and by now if a manufacturer had something good to launch at the expo, it's been launched. However, MWC isn't ...

    Right now, if you're looking to buy a smartwatch, you know to expect to pay a couple hundred dollars. And if you go for a nicer one with a premium strap (assuming you have a choice at all), we might even be talking $300, $350 – somewhere in that range. But in the very near future expectations for smartwatch pricing ...

    One of the great things about the nascent wearables market, as more and more manufacturers churn-out product after product in an effort to find what works, is that we get to see a ton of variety in the product types released. Those range from the extremely simple to models that are practically a full-fledged smartwatch ...

    With as many products as are on display at MWC 2015, it can be tough to make your accessory stand out. Deliver something nice and functional, but with a cookie-cutter design, and you're liable to find yourself quickly forgotten. But spruce things up with a little sound, a little light, and dare we say a little motion, ...

    LG didn't come to MWC this year intent on making any big launches. The few products we did get, things like the new Watch Urbane, Watch Urbane LTE, and a handful of new mid-rangers, all debuted in the days leading up to expo. But that's fine, because we've still go our sights on the G4, and it's only a matter of time ...

    Just a couple days into its run, and Mobile World Congress 2015 is already starting to slow down - way down.  That's largely a consequence of so many manufacturers jockeying to get their big announcements out first, leading to a pre-MWC Sunday that was positively stuffed to the brim with new hardware. Ever since, the ...

Such encryption had previously been a user-triggered option, but with phones and tablets that would ship with Android ...

The Android Wear-powered Huawei Watch may not have the cachet of the Moto 360, but its high density round screen might even outdo Motorola's when it comes to raw specs. And those new TalkBand models, while quite ...

We saw Huawei launch its new ...
